Great post, Peggy! The points you pull out of the "The Insider" are fodder enough for a whole seminar on ethics.

I always love watch Movies about Ethical Dilemmas . i think the are great.we can avoid the gaps and we must confront them.

I am looking for films for an upcoming ethics course for public service professionals, and entirely forgot about Brubaker. Thank you!

FYI, If you;ve never heard of, they are home to 123 documentaries/docu-dramas on a variety of topics. Their system works beautifully for teaching online courses. My students can pay between $2.99 and $4.99 (depending on whether your school has a copy of the film in the University library) to have the film stream onto their personal computer for viewing. There's a 90-day window to watch once they've paid the fee.

As an example of movies I've used:

"Holding Ground: Rebirth of Dudley Street," a movie about an impoverished Boston community organizing to revitalize their neighborhood.

"Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg," documentary about the Pentagon Papers Whistleblower.

"Scouts Honor," documentary about a father and son's effort to open the Boy Scouts to gay kids.
